ONF of the most touching and 
at the same, time most striking. pie 
tures that ever fell under my notice 
was a steel engraving that, filing on 
the parlor wall of a friend's house 
where 1 chanced to visit one. even 
ing, savfl a writer in the Miehigai 
Catholic. It was a picture of Jesus. 
not the ordinary style. The front 
of house with a tightly closed 
oaken door formed the background. 
At this door, timidh g, 
stood the figure of a man clothed in 
the garb of Pilate's time. His eves 
are frill of true friendship, as if he 
longed to do a kindnes.. to a suffer- 
ing one within. It preached a ver 
itable sermon so silently. It pic- 
tured to us the dear Jesus who 
knocks so patientlv at the oaken 
door of our stubborn hearts. Let 
us run, and opening the door, bid a 
"hea.ty ■■•.«► 

A peculiar iur.iuent in ttfrfhection 
with this siory is the fact that the 
dear old ladv who so treasured this 
picture and gave it so conspicuous a 
place in her parlor passed recently, 
without an v apparent illness, sud- 
denly into eternity. She had re- 
ceived Holy Communion in the 
morning, and that night the Lord 
knocked. With eager footsteps she 
hurriedly unlatched the door to 
welcome her guest, and behold her 
reward — eternal life without a tedi- 
ous illness. 

She said to her daughter, "I 
have no pain, but I aru going to die."

flowers, laces, colored lamps etc.

Dear Father Jerome; — 

I now take 
the opportunity of writting to your 
interesting paper, to let you know, 
how we are getting along at this 
mission. Our school closed on Tues- 
day Dec. 22 for the Christmas holi- 
days. On Christmas night at twelve 
o'clock we went to Mass which was 
celebrated by Rev. Father Martin, 
assisted by sixteen acolytes. The 
altar presented a handsome appear- 

ari object of attraction to us child- 

At ten o'clock Father Martin a 
gain officiated at High Mass. Im 
mediately after Mass was given Be 
riedietion of the Most Blessed 

In the afternoon we prepared for 
an entertainment which opened §;30 
P. M-; we had a stage put up and 
the piano brought over for the occa- 
sion. The stage singing, consisting 
of the four voices, sunrano, tenor, 
alto, and bass, was rendered bv iift\ 
select voices exclusive of the solo 
singers, minstrels, fairies, auci infant 
class. Jolly Christmas or the Neg 
lected Program was the name of 
our Cantate. 

Among the persons present were 
Rev. Father "Bernard of Fort Yates, 
Major and Mrs. Crarnsie, Mr. Wftz- 
ieben, superintendent of the Indus 
trial Boarding School, Mrs. Witz- 
leben and many other people from

After our entertainment the Christ-

decorated with numerous gifts of 
various kinds, and, judging from the 
mirth and laughter, it was quite 
evident that each one seemed well 
satisfied, that "Santa Claus" had 
given them what they liked best. 

Oil New- Years all Communicants 
of the school received Ho'lv Com-

urary we had a pleasant visit from

ST. Antoninus. Archbishop of 
Florence, relates the following story. 
Two young men had madearrang- 
ments to go hunting on a festival 
day; oiilv one of them had taken 
care to hear Mass before setting out. 
They were scarcely an hour out, 
when all of a sudden tlie skv grew 
dark, a fearful storm came on, ac- 
companied with such terrific thunder 
and lightning, that it seemed as 
though, it were the end of the world. 
What frightened them was, that 
amid that tremendous noise, thev 
heard at intervals a voice of thunder, 

ecying: Strike! strike! Meanwhile, 

the air becoming somewdiat clearer, 
they began to recover from their 
fright and pursued their way; .sud- 
denly the thunder pealed again with 
great fury, and killed the one of the 
two huntsmen who had not heard 
Mass that morning. The other, ter- 
ror struck and quite beside himself, 
knew not whether to go on or turn 


buck; whilst lie was in this trouble 
and uncertaini y, he heard again the 
same voice crying: Strike! Strike 
the Other too! He was ready to 
sink with terror, when another voice 
was heard saving these consoling 
words: u l cannot strike this one, 
because he heard this morning the 

Yerbum caro factum est." You 

Understand, dear children, that, by 
these words, which are the last of 
the Gospel of St. John, read at the 
end of the Mass, the celestial voice 
meant to say that the huntsman had 
assisted at Mass. A good lesson, by 
which we shall try to profit, at need.
